"Out by sixteen or dead on the scene, but together forever"
One of, if not the best Werewolf movie I have seen. Sisters Ginger (Ginge) and Bridget (Bee) are outcasts but they don’t care they relish in it. The sisters are obsessed with death and are always pulling off elaborate ‘death shoots’ mocking up horrible ways to die.
One night everything changes when Ginger is attacked by a creature in the night, soon she begins to change and Bee tries to help her sister get back to normal with the help of Sam a shady yet misunderstood character who knos a thing or two about Lycanthorpy.
The bond between the sisters is tested throughout the film and by the end one sister has to make the ultimate choice her life or her sisters, that culmanates in a harrowing ending not seen in many films of this genre.
The main draw to this film is the lead actors, Emily Perkins (mentioned in my last post as being the standout in IT) and Katharine Isabelle are amazing and I am amazed that neither has had that much mainstream success.
The other is that akin with Dog Soilders (another of my fav Werewolf films) there is no CGI only costumes and make-up to create the Lycanthorp form of Ginger its much more satisfying and terrifying then CGI.
I love how this film uses Lycanthropy as a metaphor for growing up and not the main focus of the film; the issues dealt with in this film are done ten times better than most straight ‘coming of age film’ out there.
